Hard to believe it's been a year! And so much has changed. Your enthralling and mysterious infant is now sitting, crawling, maybe even walking and full of personality. As the big Oh-One approaches, your family may begin to ask what you've got planned for the festivities. Keep in mind the tender age of the guest of honor and any similarly sized guests who may attend. Stick with familiar situations and themes to avoid an unintended fright.
Many a baby loves the big red noisy fire truck and will thrill to see a birthday bash in this theme. A firefighter party is easy to put together. And firefighters appeal to a broad age range, so this is a good pick for a party that will have older siblings in attendance.
Party favor: Red plastic firefighter hats. Many party stores carry firefighter-theme party hats. Or a major discount chain may stock this popular item. Look for hats that will fit little heads without dropping down over the eyes.
Game: Firefighter's Parade. In addition to rushing to fires, fire trucks are known to roll through town in holiday parades. Enlist the parents and older kids to don fire hats, ring bells, and toot horns for a firefighter's parade. It can be around the block or around the living room, depending on your guests' enthusiasm.
